I went carpin yesterday, and decided to set up one of my cat rods for carp. I haven't used the cat rods since Santee Cooper a couple weeks ago. ALL the guides on one rod, and half on the other were bent and crushed These are fairly new , very good rods I was really upset. I don't have any idea how it happened, maybe somebodys bags of CARP baits fell over in the freakin truck and smashed them on the way home from Santee Cooper? Just a wild guess.......... And I'm not talkin DA KING'S carp baits.... THE CATKING !!!
